Sweep&Go Field Tech App is a companion app for any pet waste management professionals registered with Sweep&Go. The app can be used by field technicians to supplement their Sweep&Go Pooper Scooper Web Application. It can be used via web, android phone or iphone!
Field technicians can use the app to quickly review their scheduled jobs, record worked hours, start and finish jobs as well as send notifications to clients.
If you are an owner, manager or crew leader, you may use the same employee portal login info to log in the field tech mobile app. On the other hand, field techs may only log in the field tech mobile app.
When you add a new staff member, he or she will receive an email with their login info and they should change the password after the first login.
Log in using your email and password
If you forgot your password click on password recovery. Enter your email address and submit. You will receive a code that you need to copy and paste within your app. If you use the web version of the field tech app, you will receive a link where you would reset your password.
To start your shift, you will need to:
- Enter the last 4 digits of your vehicle odometer. If you do not wish to track your vehicle mileage, you could enter four zeros (0000).
- Choose between the personal or company vehicle type. The app will remember your previous choice.
After you click “Clock In” the app will also record the shift start time and location of the field tech (if the field tech app has access to phone location services).
Shift start address will be displayed on start shift view. You may set shift start and end address within staff details in the employee portal.
Start your shift
After you start your shift, you’ll see the job list. Jobs are auto-created, auto-dispatched and routes auto-optimized.
If the start and end location are specified within staff details in the employee portal, stops will be optimized accordingly.
As you complete jobs, completed or skipped jobs will be placed under Menu > Past Jobs.
If you don’t start completing jobs in the recommended order, you may reoptimize the route starting with your current location at any time via 3 dots > Reoptimize Route.
The map view helps you easily visualize your remaining stops and makes it easy to check if your remaining jobs are optimized.
The job list consists of individual jobs.
With each job, you may see the client name and address.
For residential clients, you may see a number of dogs and if used, gated community code, gate code. To see all details you may click more info.
If any of the client dogs are marked dangerous, you’ll notice the red “Unsafe Dogs” icon. You should check with clients if it’s safe for someone else to be in the same yard with their dogs. If not, mark the dog/s dangerous.
If more services should be performed at the location, you’ll notice More Services icon.
If the job is a one time or initial cleanup, you’ll notice respective icons so you may prepare accordingly. For example, prepare additional bags. Cleanup frequency will also be displayed.
To navigate to the location, you may click Directions. On an Android phone, you may use Google Maps or Waze and on iPhone, you may use Google Maps, Apple maps or Waze. Directions will take you to the geolocation of the client address. If the address is not geocoded correctly (new development, private road, etc), then you should add a note within the job notes for the coordinates of the address to be adjusted within the employee portal. If you want directions to use the address determined by google instead enable that directions option in Field Tech App settings.
Notes to Field Tech will also appear on the job preview if there are any special notes. For info about areas to clean, dog names, yard photo, etc you would go to more info.
If a client requested “On the way” notification, you’ll notice “On the Way” button appear. When you’re ready to proceed to the location, click “On the Way” and select when you expect to be at the location. You may notify clients up to 1 hour in advance that you’re coming to their location. You may send multiple “On the Way” notifications. For each notification you may see at what time it was sent.

For jobs that have additional services included you will need to increment counters according to services performed and/or products used. Those services and/or products will show up within the next invoice draft.
